Mass of Farewell will be held at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Rose Creek on Saturday October 25, 2014 at 10AM with a luncheon and fellowsip following to celebrate the life of William V. Cress.

Mr. Cress 92 passed away at home in the early hours of Friday October 17, 2014.

William Vincent Cress was born November 11, 1921 the son of William and Mary (Fink) Cress. Bill was a graduate of Rose Creek High School. He lived most of his entire life on the family farm. On August 28, 1948 he married Mary Jane Becker in Caledonia. In addition to farming he also worked as a bus driver and carpenter.

Mr. Cress was a lifelong member of St. Peter's Catholic Church. He enjoyed playing sports in his youth, then as a spectator in later years, with Minnesota Twins baseball, Minnesota Lynx and Gophers basketball being among his favorite teams to watch. In May 2014, Bill and Mary Jane moved off the family farm into an apartment at Primrose Retirement Community in Austin.

Survivors include his wife of 66 years, 3 sons, 4 daughters, many grand, and great grandchildren, one sister and 2 brothers-in-law.

Because Bill donated his body to the Mayo Clinic for medical research, burial will take place in Rose Creek at a later date.
